Winter EDC!

Well, here's a video of what I'm carrying during the winter. I find videos a little easier than the normal writing, and it's easier to show things and talk.

Caffeinated Gum

Just a quick heads up. I think it comes out to just over $1 a pack when you buy it on Amazon. (Then again, you have to buy 25 packs at once, I bought it along with two other friends to help share the costs.) At $1 a pack, each piece is 20 cents. Each piece provides roughly the same caffeine as a cup of coffee. Therefore, in terms of caffeine content alone, it is a lot cheaper.

Custom IEMs (Inner Ear Monitors)!

Basically, for around $9, with shipping, I was able to create a set of IEM covers custom-fitted to my ears. (IEM is an inner ear monitor, which goes inside your ear canal. A earbud sits on the outside of that canal.)

They look a little strange, but are incredibly comfortable. I do not feel anything inside my ear canal, and on the outside, only feel a slight drag from the weight of the IEMs themselves. Currently, I'm using JVC FXD80 IEMs, and the custom mold helps accentuate the bass, open up the soundstage, while providing greater isolation than before. This mold is easy to do, and only took me around 30 minutes.

Fisherman's Friends?

Not hook, line, sinker or whatever (I'm not a fisherman, but those are fishy terms... literally. Never mind.) Anyways, a bunch of people seem to be coughing and sick around here, so I figured, why not.

I think these work a lot better than Hall's or Ricola or whatever. These "Lozenges," or as most people call them, cough drops, just blow everything clear. I found these at CVS. Next to all the other cough drops, on the shelf. Nice distinctive packaging. But anyways, these work a lot better for me. And if anyone's EDC conscious, these are a lot thinner and lighter than most other brands. Worth a try. $3.50 for 38. They don't look very appetizing, but they work great.

Lamy Safari

Just got a new fountain pen. Oops, I know I said I wasn't gonna get more stuff, but this deal was a little too good. It's bright green. Very. Bright. The color's pretty close on my computer.

More after the jump!

Bogota Lock Picks

This is kind of scary, but I opened my house locks with ease. Made the picks yesterday, spent 10 minutes practicing today, and then took the videos. So yeah.. complete novice. Here's a video anyways. I'll make the How-To in a week or so I guess.

Bogota Style Lockpicks!!

Yup, so I made my own pair of Bogotas. They were originally conceived by Raimundo, and named after the Bogota mountains from which he took inspiration. They go for around $30 a pair, which is a little pricey, so I made my own. Went biking around, and in an hour, found 4 street sweeper bristles, which make great lock picks. I'm a very novice picker, and haven't even had time to test this pair out. I made them this afternoon, and have been sanding during the evening. But, here they are.
I'll pop in an update tomorrow or the day after... and we'll see if these work.

Fisher Bullet

So I was lucky enough to find a Fisher Bullet while out hiking.

It's a pretty nice pen, closes up very small. The weird thing is that retention is provided by an o-ring, so pulling it open has quite some resistance. Runs a fisher cartridge, which is famed for the pressurized internals, allowing one to write upside down, underwater, and of course, in space. Here's a shot in hand:

Snacks/Bug Out Food (BOF?)

Here it is. My little pack of food for EDC. Well, bag EDC, mostly my school backpack. 1260 Calories, 12.5 ounces in weight. More specifics after the jump.

My Perrin Bracelet

A Perrin Bracelet- a custom, handmade bracelet by Fred Perrin. Mr. Perrin is a former French Army Commando, a master in martial arts, and is highly renowned for his self defense skills and weapons. Here's a titanium bracelet, hand forged by him. Given his background, this bracelet's not just a piece of jewelry.

Being followed while driving?

I might be just paranoid, but this happened to me today. So I was driving around, and came upon this intersection where I intended to make a right turn. In front of me was a red van. It wasn't moving. There was an empty road, and the van wasn't turning right. I checked around the signs- none of them indicated a right turn was illegal. So I gave a gentle beep to remind the van to move. It waited around another 5 seconds, and then started to go. I moved up, stopped, checked, and made my own turn. So all was good. The van was in the lane to my right. It soon switched lanes and got behind me. I didn't really notice at first.

Then, I made a left turn. I was on the way to a friend's house, so this turn was into a somewhat secluded neighborhood (I didn't see another car on the street.) In my rearview mirror, I noticed a car turn in. The red color caught my eye, and I remembered the red van (I'd been wondering why the van had not moved.) Coincidence right? Then I made a right. The van made a right. I made another right, onto my friend's street. The van followed that right. Finally, I made one more right. The van followed me. One left, three rights. Coincidence? Maybe, but now we were right back towards the street I'd originally made a left to. I went onto that original street, went towards a busier intersection, and then waited just before a large group of cars came. I made my right and left the van behind.

I know I might just sound paranoid, but it struck me as odd that the van would be behind me for so many turns. Maybe it's just a coincidence. Maybe not. Either way, I wasn't going to stop and lead them to my friends house, nor stop the car in general. It's best to keep moving I think. They can't do anything while I'm in the car moving. I locked the doors as soon as I realized the van had stayed behind me for the two turns. Had I not been able to get rid of it, I would have made many more turns- enough to definitely confirm it was following me, and called 991. Maybe this post isn't really within the realm of EDC, but the purpose of an EDC is to be prepared for the everyday problems in life. To me, that includes personal security. No point in playing the hero and getting out to confront the guy.

I'd rather assume the worst in these cases. Maybe he wasn't following me. Well in that case, my little "escape" maneuver would not have affected anyone but a little bit of my gas. This is also why I do not pick up hitchhikers (you know the driver becomes responsible for any illegal things the passenger is carrying?) and will not be alone with a stranger to help them- except in the cases of an immediate danger. I know it sounds selfish, but I've had bad experiences, which have taught me that other people are not always very kind.

National Knife Day!

Yup, August 24th is a cut above the rest, because it has the edge of being national knife day! (I'm lame, get my point?) [Yes, that was 3 "puns"]

Anyways, enjoy the day! has a giveaway on their site, so go check that out! Other than that, here's my collection.

Quick Descriptions. So the ones underneath the leatherman and the fixed blade are made by me, and you can check them out here: KnifeMaking

Other than that, starting from the top left and going down: 
Gerber POS. JK it's not actually called the POS, but that thing's liner lock failed. I still keep it for sentimental purposes though. It was one of my first real knives.
Swiss Army Knife: My first knife!
Leatherman: Another one of my early knives. Works pretty well for what it is. 
Spyderco Endura: My first "high-end" knife. Started the knife/edc addiction. 
Spyderco Dragonfly: Won from a forum contest. Small and great EDC.
Spyderco Mini Persian: One of a kind. I believe it's the only one like this. Mother of Pearl and Jet handles.
Spyderco S: Great knife, one of my grails. Looks pretty sick with all those holes. 
Spyderco Ladybug: Used to be my keychain knife. Then something called Zero Tolerance got in the way.
Spyderco Merlin: Just got it, but I love the hawkbill and serrations. Waved for draw speed. 

Here are some words from the late James Mattis (on why he carries): 

My good reason to carry a knife is that God gave me rather weak teeth and rudimentary claws in an evolutionary trade-off. The hairy-armed person who figured out how to put an edge on a suitable rock made it possible for us to be recognizably human in the first place. I wear a wristwatch whether or not I have an appointment to keep, and I carry a pen and/or pencil because I am a literate person whether or not I have a specific writing task ahead of me, and I carry a knife because I am a human and not an ape.
A knife comes in handy for all sorts of random tasks that involve separating matter. Like cutting a string, or making a sandwich, or opening a package. It can also come in handy in an emergency, which need not involve a human assailant, and emergencies are by their nature unforeseen, so one should carry a knife all the time.
And in a perfect world where nobody needed a weapon, I'd probably carry a slightly larger knife, because it wouldn't scare people. ~James Mattis

Yup, have a nice day and stay sharp!

I've been looking for patches to put on my backpack. So I dug around, and found this one. Maybe a little too violent for school? Oh well. I was considering buying some very conservative(politically speaking), but given the atmosphere at school.... anyways, here's my patch:

Leatherman Style PS

Just got a new multitool for my keychain! Okay, I'll be honest. It's my first multi tool.... so not very EDC-like huh? So I looked for this one for awhile, but finally found it at REI. I was trying to avoid one with a knife, because I already carry a better knife anyways, and I wanted to have one I can carry to school and airports and wherever else that doesn't allow knives. Comes with a bottle opener/carabiner, a pair of tweezers (peeking out near the carabiner), a nail file/flathead screw driver, a pair of scissors, pliers, and a wire cutter.

I love the feelings of the springs in the scissors and the pliers. Nice and crisp, not weak, but yet easy to manipulate. There is a bit of play between the two.. jaws of the pliers, but not enough to affect usage. It cost me $21, not including tax.

Cordura Pocket FAK!

So this is supposed to be a pocket organizer/FAK. Holds a flashlight (specificially Zebralight), and a pen. A little tight for my TWSBI, but it fits.

I am definitely not a great seamstress. It is adequate and sturdy though.

More on the contents and construction after the jump:

Kydex Wave!

I waved my Spyderco Merlin! Opens up faster than any other knife system, and easily done to a Spyderco! 
I used a spare piece of Kydex for the wave. In case you don't know what a wave is:

Spyderco Merlin!

So this was the second part of my trade. A spyderco merlin. My first hawkbill knife. The handle is really comfy! Hmm. Not much to say, it's my first serrated Spyderco too. I'll have to use it and see how it goes. Interesting how there's no Spyderco logo. I thought the blade looked weird until I foudn that out.

Not so sure I like the clip....

Spyderco C109 S! (HOLEY COW!)

So I traded for two knives! (Next one will be up tomorrow.) (I sent the Air away.) First off... one I'm stupidly excited about. The Spyderco S. Not the most popular knife, but ever since I saw it two years ago (when I began this knife EDC stuff), I wanted it.

Pretty cool, isn't it? More after the jump:

My #1 favorite piece of clothing. Well, maybe not. But a beanie packs small and light, yet offers a lot of warmth for its size. Often overlooked too! Here's mine:

Yeah, I have no idea how I managed to end up with the same color scheme on both.  The Philmont one is really nice and cushy. At least 1/4" thick. Probably more. But it's a little too bulky for me, so I just end up wearing the Spyderco beanie. Funny thing is, I can wear it around school and no one has a clue. Just a pretty spider on a beanie right? 

It's really thin, but keeps me pretty warm. It's nice to have something over my head and especially ears. My ears get cold really easily. But sometimes, if it's cold and I'm wearing short sleeves, I can just pop on a beanie and it gets better! To the point that I don't need a jacket. So yup. Look into one. It's small enough that I usually just keep the Spyderco one in the pocket of my jacket.

Oakley Sunglasses

My pair of Oakley half jackets. I've had these for at least three years already. Notice that the lettering at the bridge has been worn off. Still, I think they were worth every bit that I paid for them. ($120)

Knifemaking Status Update

So. This knife was supposed to be finished by now. However, during the summer, I was playing volleyball and managed to fall in a fire pit. Second and third degree burns all over my left hand. So I can't really use my hand, and my knifemaking is dead. Shame too. The latest one is awesomeness.

Zebralight SC52cw

My EDC light! Small as heck, yet plenty bright!

Buy Eneloops! (AKA the best rechargeable AA batteries.) Or Duraloops! (Duracell Eneloops.)

Why? Because they're pretty!

Okay I'm not sure if it's just me but they look really nice and clean. But more importantly is that thy are pretty much the best rechargeable AA battery. They have low drain (up to 3 years with 75% capacity), and work well under heavy loads. Normal alkaline batteries are what? $1 each? An eneloop is around $2.50 (MUCH cheaper for me from costco. More on that later.) And it's rechargeable for 1500 times. It's a no brainer. Saves money, batteries, garbage waste, and it's better than an alkaline anyways. What's more, these are extremely reliable. Alkaline batteries sometimes leak or fail. Eneloops are very consistent from battery to battery, and can hold a charge for a long time, without leakage or failure. That's what makes them such a big deal.

FAK that!

Just in case anyone's wondering what I carry in my FAK (First Aid Kit). It's supposed to be a daily EDC. Sometimes, I carry a bigger one, but this is my pocket FAK. It's no good if it's in your backpack at home right?

How to Make a Mighty Wallet!

A Mighty Wallet is a wallet made of Tyvek. It's amazingly thin, due to Tyvek being literally as thin as paper. However, the interlocking plastic fibers provide strength, tear-resistance, and water resistance. As a bonus, the entire wallet can also be recycled. (But remove the cash first!) Not bad right? Here's a link to the Original Mighty Wallet: Check out the price. $15 for a Tyvek wallet. That's crazy mark-up. So I just made my own. I believe the only difference is that I only have 1 cash pocket. I've never owned a mighty wallet though, so I can be off. So this isn't an exact copy, but it's similar enough. Thin tyvek wallet.

Here's the wallet. 7 bills, 7 cards, and one challenge coin.

July 2013 EDC Haul!

;July has been an unusually good month for me. I never spend too much, but now and then good things happen and I get a lot more stuff than usual. In June, all I got was... a bottle of ink. But here's this month's haul:

Not the best pic, but oh well. I'll go chronologically.

How much does your EDC weigh? I try to keep it down as much as I can (jogging with everything jiggling around just feels weird.) Here's my EDC items/weight:

My cell phone is depressing. Yeah I really need to get it replaced soon. Surprises? How light a bunch of my stuff are. The oakleys weigh almost the same as my pen. Technically, the wallet is only 38 grams. I keep a silver eagle in there and that's 31 grams. So yeah. The wallet and the FAK really weigh nothing. I should do a post on my FAK. Tyvek REALLY helps. I weighed the shell of my old wallet, and that weighed more than the current wallet with stuff in it. Kind of surprised how heavy the dragonfly is compared to the knife I made. They both use G10 scales, and the one I made is 4" long. I guess the backlock design really weighed down the dragonfly. Oh, and I used titanium liner in mine. 

Zebralight is around right, with a AA battery in it. Watch is dang heavy, but given that it's an automatic I expected it. And don't care. I love my watch. 


If you've ever seen a photo of my entire knife collection (I'll post a picture soon), you'll notice around half the knives have a hole in the blade. The other halfish are made by.. me! I have the largest collection of Minibear knives in the world. Which isn't saying much. Point is, aside from a swiss army and a gerber (POS, was not worth it. I avoid gerber like the plague now), my only production knives are Spydercos. My Endura was my first "real" knife, and I've found that Spydercos have a great quality. On the occasional miss, the warranty will have the knife back within 3 weeks. (My Navaja's Carracca broke once.) I tend to stick with a brand once I know it, so thus, I've stuck with Spyderco. My reasons for avoiding other companies?

Saturday, July 27, 2013


I'm not really a caffeine junkie or anything, but I love coffee. Not that I over do it. One cup now and then. Sometimes if I'm tired, sometimes if I go to a cafe. Either straight up black (I've never added milk/sugar to my coffee), or a dry cappuccino. Bonus points if you can make a iced dry cappuccino. (Purists would argue that's not a cappuccino, but I love having the warm foam over cold coffee.) Anyways, the point is that I had my first can of Rockstar in a very very long time. I usually just get caffeine from coffee. Energy drinks, IMO, are a decent source of caffeine, but taste unpleasant and I'd much rather just get coffee. (Although energy drinks are probably cheaper.)

So, this morning, I went to see my brother off at the airport. I got 4 hours of sleep in total. And I had six hours of volleyball. And my car broke down. Some anti-freeze tube leaked. So I had to bike to volleyball. Which was around 25 minutes away (5 miles.)

So I hopped on Noleta (my bike), feeling all nice and woozy. You know that feeling when you just wake up, and it's kind of like your mind's still asleep and your eyes aren't really processing anything? Yup. Ladidada... anyways, I passed by a 7-11. I figured... well, six hours of volleyball was gonna suck. So might as well go for an energy drink.

So I went in and looked. I've always got rockstar just because. It was kind of my first can (a few years back, it was between red bull, monster, and rockstar. And I knew I hated the first two from sips I got from friends. So I've always just went with rockstar. Yup. Brand loyalty ftw.) My last can had been the original two years ago before a volleyball game. (Deja Vu?) I was definitely not going to get the original flavor, because that tart flavor definitely was not pleasant. It's like drinking some sort of wake-up medicine.  Skipped zero carb/no sugar as a rule. Recovery... well I didn't need to recover. (I have no idea what all the flavors are supposed to do.) And settled with:
Sorry about the terrible picture. I just walked out, sat down, and poured everything into my spare nalgene. Because biking. But it's the punched guava one. You can see the color in the bottle on the left- a nice reddish-pink. I liked the purple can. 

I just had a few drops of what was left in the can, and biked on. I was kinda of late. Oops, I go on too many tangents huh? Point is, I drank it at around 1:30. I only drank 8oz, since I figured I'd save the rest for later. And it was amazing. The taste... well I actually wanted to drink it. It had a lovely fizzy carbonation with a sweet taste of guava. It doesn't really taste like guava.. but I don't mind the sweet interpretation.  And I went to play. At first: Nope. Nothing. No kick. At around 2:00, the kick came in, and I started to get more energy, and a little bit more excited. (As a rule, caffeine just elevates my happiness and makes me a little giddy. Nothing too crazy. And I generally don't crash.) Not a bad kick. Then, at 4:00ish, I died. It was really sad to see. I kept serving, and I was missing around 25% of my serves. (And that's pretty bad. I usually make over 95%- more if I give an easy lob of a serve.) They weren't even really misses, my hand just wouldn't hit the ball right on, and I didn't really give it the umph. It was pathetic. So I drank the rest.

And that, is where it all worked out. It took another 30ish minutes to kick in for me, but once it did.. I was good to go. I played well, serves were going over, and wasn't tired. The stuffy head feel went away too! And I kept playing, biked home without even slowing down too much. I could feel I was tired, but I could keep going the entire time. And I got home at around 8:30, came in, and started to feel tired. No crash, but just the "I'm tired from too much exercise tired."

So there. Not really an EDC post, but it kind of is. I mean, I did carry it in my nalgene right? Let's hope I don't get addicted to energy drinks. Oh well, they say you can take 400mg a day without any adverse effects... If I suddenly stop posting, then stay away from rockstar.

Tyvek Wallet?

Well, when I won the Spyderco Dragonfly from Endgame's contest, he sent it to me... with a tyvek envelope. So I got to it today. Not the best I could have done, but I'll use my awkward one hand construction as an excuse for now. I've got plenty of material left though. I can make another one easy.

I'm not too sure how long it's going to last... but for the moment, it works. Thin as heck too!

I don't really keep that much stuff in my wallet. I have around 10 bills, 6 cards (mostly gift cards, a library card, debit, and driver's license.) I'm carrying my silver eagle around for now though. The front right pocket (you can just see a shadow of the coin) is really for a challenge coin though. I'm waiting for one of Mooshi's Mooshbot Minion coins to put there! 
I tried to write on the Tyvek.. but it BLEEDS. -.- Probably should have used a sharpie actually. But too late. That's Noodler's Bulletproof 54th Mass. 

Not sure how long it's going to hold up, but I'll use it until it dies.

Or maybe the P should be switched with a t. Cursive seems to be fading out. I don't have the neatest cursive, but in my opinion it is workable. But apparently some people still can't read it. Kind of sad when you think that one day, people won't be able to read cursive. Since schools aren't teaching it, I suspect there'll only be a few pockets here and there who learn from their parents, and eventually it might fade out. Anyways, because I got annoyed with people not being able to read, I switched my handwriting to a Chancery Italic. Technically I didn't "switch" (I have three different 'fonts'- a chicken scratch, cursive, and an italic), but it's hard to move back and forth since it becomes a habit to me. So yup. Here's the three types. Sorry for all the mistakes, I ended up mixing some letters. And the italic got sloppy. The last bit of italic is probably the better bit. This was written with a TWSBI Mini Classic and Sailor Jentle Blue ink.

Wednesday, July 24, 2013


So, for those of who don't know, I'm also a novice knifemaker. And by that, I mean I fiddle around and do stuff with knives. I'm not good at it, and I'm much too impatient to get a good finish, but I'm proud that my knives lock up with zero blade play- pretty hard given the tools I use. I use no electrical tools except for a hand held drill. So the amount of precision I'm getting is very debatable. But it works out. Here's what I've done so far, in order:


Well, I've always wanted to buy Silver. Since around.. a year or so ago. There are many reasons for it, but the biggest one driving me was the fact that our money isn't worth anything. How much is a $100 bill worth? Technically, it's worth however many folds you can give it while wiping your butt. However, it has worth because of.... mutual trust. Oh look at that. A bill is only worth something because people think it's worth something. It's a fancy piece of paper that everyone's agreed to use. It's not backed by gold either. Nope. So if anything happened to that trust... yup. But on the other hand, precious metals have a certain price because of the demand. They're precious. Silver's used in all sorts of industrial tasks. So it will always be worth a certain amount. That price just fluctuates with supply and demand.

So I sort of wanted to buy silver then. (At the time I was really into the whole TEOTWAWKI preparing thing. I still have a bug out bag loaded and ready to go.) But silver kept going up and up and it was a terrible time to buy. Now, silver's fallen back down, and what the heck I may I as well right? So I managed to buy two coins today (oh wow so much!) for $24 each. Which is pretty good given that they're silver eagles. The cheapest, as of now, is $23.79 online. Factor in shipping and such, and I didn't do so badly. I figure I'll buy a few coins whenever I have the cash to do so.

The good thing about buying silver is that, in my opinion, it's not a "waste of money." It's simply moving your money into another form of currency. Now, it may drop, but seeing as silver hasn't gone below $10 in around 4 years, and it kinda has an upwards trend, I figure it's decently safe. And I just plan to "lose" all my money when I buy silver. Just so I don't screw myself if the price tanks. And who knows, maybe the investment will go through. Maybe not. But in the meantime, I'll just keep building up my stash for the reasons mentioned.

So here's what I did today:

Starting a blog! Inspired by Mooshi on EDC forums. Mostly because I'm bored, but I figured I might as well blab. And I always wanted a blog. Because I'm so self centered. Just an EDC update for my first post. (EDC- Every Day Carry.) I figure I"ll do this whenever things change, and maybe in depth review/talk/blabber about some of my EDC items. I'm mainly into knives, but also extend to some other EDC stuff.

I carry everything in my pockets, and add a Camelback if it's necessary. With a camelback, I just carry a larger FAK (first aid kit), spare batteries for my flashlights, maybe a fixed blade if I'm out camping, water, pen, ink, and some stuff for wherever I'm going. But I usually just stick with my pockets.

There. I just laid everything over where I usually carry it. Except for my Seiko 5 watch. Which goes on my wrist. And I wear a necklace around... my neck!

So at the right thigh pockets, I carry my Oakley Half Jackets (I can't believe they made a version 2 already!). Polarized lenses, I forgot what tint. I just throw them in there loose- the wallet doesn't really ding it up at all. My wallet is just two slabs of Toxic Green G10 that I keep together with O-rings. It works pretty well- you just pull the one in the middle all the way to the o ring on the left, and the wallet sort of hinges with the o rings and fans open. I usually carry my Driver's License where the gift card is so that I can just show it without doing anything. But internet and privacy issues.

In the right pocket, I carry a small FAK (neosporin, bandaids, gauze, duct tape, antibiotic wipes, hand santizing wipes, and butterfly bandaids. The last one is for my knife cuts.) Then I also throw in a small knife. I just won a Spyderco Dragonfly in Foliage G10, so I've been carrying that one around.

Left pocket is just my POS cell phone. I kind of regret buying it because it was like $50 for the phone. (I'm not sure what this is called, but basically I buy a phone, and then I can get cash loaded on the account for the phone.) And it is fat. The screen opens up to text, and I rarely text anyways. It's too heavy and thick to be practical, but oh well.

Left thing pocket is either my keychain or the Zebralight. I don't really have keys- car keys goes in my right front pocket. So my keychain just has a house key, a USB, library card thing, and a Preon 0. Lately, since it's summer and I don't need the USB, I've been carrying my Zebralight SC52cw. Amazing flashlight. I'll probably do a post about it later.

And finally, at 4 'o clock, I carry a knife. I don't always carry it for a short drive somewhere, but if I'm going out and expect heavier usage, I carry it. It's one I made last year, a 4" D2 blade with Anso-textured black/OD green G10 handles. Liner lock. It's carried in a self-made kydex sheath that slides onto the belt IWB. And yes, I will post something for all these TLA (three letter acronyms.)

I kind of dread winter now. I'll probably go back to wear jeans... and then oh no. Two pockets. Maybe I'll have to go to my buttpockets, but I'm always afraid I'll squish the thing with my fat. But I added the FAK during the spring.. so I'm not sure how it'll fit. Usually I just collapse everything upwards (so everything on the right side goes in the right pocket and such.) But a FAK and a wallet=problems.

Oh well, there's my first post. Woot woot.
